National Take Back Initiative
~The day to dispose of your unused, unwanted, and expired medicine~
Saturday April 30, 2022 (10am-2pm)
On Saturday April 30th, the Peapack and Gladstone Police Department will host a collection site at 1 School Street in Peapack (Peapack and Gladstone Municipal Building).
This program is anonymous and all efforts will be made to protect the anonymity of individuals disposing of medications. No questions or requests for identification will be made. Individuals should deposit medication freely and independently.
Individuals may dispose of medication either in its original container or by removing medication from its container and disposing directly into the drug disposal box. If the original container is submitted, the individual should be encouraged to remove the prescription label if it contains any personal identifying information.
Liquid products, such as cough medicine, should remain sealed in their original container. The depositor should ensure that the cap is tightly sealed to prevent leakage.
E-Cigarette and Vaping devices will be collected ONLY after batteries have been removed from the devices. If batteries cannot be removed, contact electronic chain stores who may accept vape pens or e-cigarette devices. You may also contact your local Hazardous Materials Management Facility to inquire as to whether they accept these devices.
Syringes and other sharp instruments should NOT be accepted.
